Fun article, Seienchin!
On Okinawa Karate instructors are many, so they are more seen as real people, and less as Masters of Myth!
As for the "horseshoe strike", I think the author might be mistaken. She's probably confused the horseshoe (Unused) and the stirrup. The original Nunchiyaku was part of the bridle, and horsehair also figured as a weapon.
Pleased she mentioned the hangover part though. Very authentic!
